The American Dream is heralded and aspired to, by immigrants and natives alike. It is a hopeful belief, that although many believe in, very few achieve. This variability of outcomes is due to the American Dream’s dependency on ideals of equality and freedom of opportunity. These two ideals do not
First, let's define "American Dream". "American Dream" is what you would consider a "perfect life." It can be full of happiness, money, love, food, cars, whatever you desire, everyone has a different opinion.

I am motivated by my dreams, being more success and also living a better life. In the great words of Nelson Mandela “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’’. So it’s very important to be ahead in life and for me to be focus of my career goals and what I want to accomplish. College also gives you great experience in the fields and real life training, college can also enhance skills set on computers and areas of work that high school didn’t teach you, so it’s important for me to get the education I need. A degree also can provide me with promotions in the near future.
My grandparents struggled on a day-to-day basis because my grandfather’s salary was only enough to eat rice and beans. My grandfather realized that it was not possible to be able to feed four children and improve their lifestyle under this low-income job. He began to seek for a new job in which he would gain a decent amount of money to improve his family’s lifestyle. He was not able to obtain a good paying job in Mexico. As a result, he found that the only solution would be for him to immigrate to the United States. The author Carol Cleaveland, from the George Mason University, finds that many immigrants “faced the choice of subsisting at home, or realizing the hope of earning a better living job in El Norte” this was the case for my grandfather (576).
Everyone has a dream. Whether it is to have a family, or even to become a psychiatrist, a dream is present in everyone. Those dreams are mainly referred to as “American Dreams.” Hard work is needed to be able to get anywhere in life. The American Dream is attainable if one is willing to put in the work to achieve it.
The American Dream The American Dream is a dream to live in a place where someone’s rights and freedoms can not be taken away from them and where they can achieve their goals without anyone stopping them no matter what their background is. People achieved the American dream through motivation and hard work. Although as time passed, they became too lazy to actually work for it. Somewhere along the way, people began to interpret the American dream as a dream to live in wealth. Because of this, it has made them think that happiness is defined by how much money they have. They also started to find ways to get rich quick without working for it. Many people question whether or not the American dream is attainable or too far fetched. The American
I am not a bricklayer, but a builder; building upon my parent’s dedication to pursue a better life for themselves and for their children. As the son of a naturalized Arab-American father, whose Palestinian origins show me the meaning of being a minority, and a Palestinian immigrant mother, who inspires me to continue pursuing my aspirations amidst the daunting and unknown road ahead, I endlessly strive to achieve my American dream.
Coming into a different world from a small village in Europe, into a world that makes your dreams come true, into a world that gives us so many opportunities, so many ideas, and so much love. In my own village, the village where people were happy just because they had
Since the major success that America has gone through its life as a country, many people have dreamed of coming to the U.S. in hope of their dreams succeeding just as other’s have before. Through multiple documents and speeches, people can realize that unlike what other people say, America does want its people to accomplish their dream and proves this through its actions. In the poem, “Africa to America” by Phillis Wheatley, the document, Bill of Rights, the speech, Keynote Address to the 2004 Democratic National Convention by Barack Obama, and the document Declaration of Independence, they all demonstrate that America is willing to continue to make the American Dream possible to all people. The American Dream is still accessible to the people by promising equality and freedom, by offering new opportunities, and through the government’s willingness to help the American Dream.
Last year in October I came from school as usual I remember that day was very cold and I was covered in winter clothes my stomach growled from the hunger I had, so I went to eat a hot soup so that the cold would take away. While I ate the soup I listened as my parents talked I could not hear clearly so I decided to go quietly to listen to my parents they decided to move from Mexico to United States the reason why my parents decided that it was better to go to the United States was for job reasons, while I processed everything they said suddenly my mother called me along with my younger brother and explained the reasons why it was necessary for us to leave.
I would define my American Dream as having my dream job of becoming a neurosurgeon, marrying the man of my dreams, having a beautiful family, living life to the fullest and being happy while doing everything. I also have always wanted to travel the world and see many different places. I want to be very successful in life and to be able to do whatever I can for my family. My biggest part of my dream is to have fun no matter what I'm doing, who I'm doing it with, or where I'm doing it. All of these little dreams make up the American Dream that I have always had ever since I was a little kid.
The dream. The American Dream to me, means that anyone and everyone can come to America and have their dreams come true for them. That you can grow strong being in this county, we have a lot more opportunities handed to Americans that not all countries have. When I think of the american dream i think of other countries and how they try so hard to get to the land of the free and to get where we are today. They would do anything to be here. While people in america have most things handed to them, other countries don't, the jobs opportunities we have are limitless with just a little school and education we can get to where we need to be. The american dream is not just based for only americans it can be for anyone no matter the race, gender, ethnicity, religion, etc. We have different beliefs but it all leads to what? How are we going to get it? How long will it take me to reach my goal? And who is gonna be by my side when i’m trying to achieve this goal. The American Dream is opportunity, freedom, and education.
